Generic Art Solutions is an art enterprise that is founded by Matt Vis and Tony Campbell. Matt and Tony are based in New Orleans. They use a variety of art media to human drama and dysfunction of modern society. Their art is always founded in performance in which they play every character in their work. They stage many recurring dramas in history and in epic style. They combine elements of Romanticism, the Baroque, and Classicalism in their work.
I love the muti-media approach of the duo, from performance to video to photography to sculpture. It was one of the things I always admired about Dali...his vision was not limited by time or media..he was curious and intelligent and also had a air for drama. I am not sure at all that Matt and Tony would see any of Dali in their approach, but in art history when we look for curiosity, and vision, and interest of drama and pitching it to a larger audience we can not leave out Salvador Dali.
